This article published in the June 2017 issue of ACM TOG contributes a parallelizable optimization framework for real-time, high-quality, 3D scanning of large-scale scenes.
This article published in the June 2017 issue of ACM TOG proposes a real-time method that uses a single-view RGB-D input to simultaneously reconstruct a scene with a detailed geometry model, surface albedo, per-frame non-rigid motion, and per-frame low-frequency lighting.
This article published in the June 2017 issue of ACM TOG presents an algorithm for computing smooth fields of orthogonal directions within a volume, a critical step in hexahedral mesh generation, used to guide placement of edges and singularities.
